There’s just something so infuriating about standing in a group of people who are talking and when I say something, not only do they not look at me, they ignore what I’ve just said. Am I in high school again? Is this the popular “I’m too good to talk to you” group?
I spend half the year alone with no adult interaction, so when I’m around people I don’t want to be ignored. I’m not asking to be the center of attention (although sometimes that’s a nice feeling), but a little recognition of my existence would be nice. This may come as a surprise to some people, but I have feelings and opinions and I’m a pretty nice person, most of the time. Look, it’s fine if you disagree with me, but please don’t ignore me.
